Tuition Waivers, Exemptions, and 3rd Party Contracts

Tuition Waivers

This page provides an overview of tuition waivers, exemptions and 3rd party Contracts information currently offered at Nunez Community College.

Tuition waivers are applied only in specific situations for students who meet specific eligibility requirements. The information provided is intended for informational purposes and may not include all legislatively mandated waivers and exemptions available.

Eligible students must submit all required documents prior to the census date for each semester.

3rd Party Contracts

A third-party organization may sponsor a student’s enrollment by committing to paying a student's mandatory tuition and registration fees. Most organizations will grant the sponsorships through an application process. Once the student recipients are identified, the organization will send the funds to the school along with award processing instructions.

If the organization requires that they be invoiced directly before issuing payment, the student may request that the campus accept a Third Party Contract. The Bursar Office coordinates Third Party Contracts.  The Bursar’s Office does not assist students with identifying a sponsor. For more information, contact
